WHAT IS A 'GOOD MAN?'

I wouldn’t limit it to “man.” To be a good person, I think, means striving to do good works while helping people along the way. I’ve done that at Acxiom and First Orion. I’m defined by the people around me.

MOST ADMIRABLE QUALITY IN MEN:

I most admire people who’re trying to do the right thing — looking after their families and the people they work with, being honest and trustworthy. When they promise you something, you can count on it. There’s substance behind their words.

PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT:

I’m proud of living up to the responsibility of building a large company like Acxiom. But I’m proudest of having helped create the opportunity for folks to raise and educate their families while having great careers right here in Arkansas.

FAVORITE PART OF YOUR JOB:

I’m a problem solver — to me there’s nothing more exciting than wrestling with technology problems. At First Orion, we’re working to solve one of the world’s biggest — how to give people back their cell phone communication by cutting out the scammers.

FAVORITE HOBBIES:

I love any high-tech gadget that’s got power and wheels. When I was younger, I raced sportscars and flew jets. And now that I’ve got a place in the country, my new passion is pushing boulders around on my bulldozer.
